The historic Isaac Franklin Plantation, also called Fairvue, was built in 1832. Isaac Franklin was a successful slave trader who sold approximately 1,200 enslaved people into the Southwest region, earning almost $1,000,000 in his lifetime. After changing hands several times over the years, the site was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977. However, the area was eventually evolved into a golf course community, and as such the National Historic Landmark designation was withdrawn in 2005. The area is said to be haunted, presumably by some of the slaves involved in Franklin’s dealings.
